From the Back Cover:

Written in a lively and accessible style, Globalization: The Making of World Society shows how globalization affects everyday experience, creates new institutions, and presents new challenges.

With many examples, Lechner describes how the process unfolds in a wide range of fields, from sports and media to law and religion. While sketching the outlines of a world society in the making, the book also demonstrates that globalization is inherently diverse and contentious. In this concise analysis of a complex subject, Lechner presents some of the best work in the social sciences in clear and readable fashion.

Globalization: The Making of World Society will serve as a stimulating, state-of-the-art text for any student of globalization, beginner or advanced.

About the Author:

Frank J. Lechner is Professor of Sociology at Emory University in Atlanta. Among his publications dealing with globalization are World Culture: Origins and Consequences (with John Boli) (Blackwell, 2005) and The Netherlands: Globalization and National Identity (2008) as well as an edited volume, The Globalization Reader (with John Boli) (third edition, Wiley-Blackwell, 2008).
